External Reviews for Roederer Cristal Rose
Intriguing earthy note marks this penetrating rosé. It touches on berry, citrus and pastry notes, shows fine density and a creamy texture. Beautifully integrated, with a long, nutty aftertaste. Best from 2006 through 2012. 1,600 cases made. (BS) Wine Spectator. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. 1996 Roederer, Louis Cristal Rose 750ml
Classical Champagne, this is predominantly pinot noir from old vines in Cumieres, creating a wine that focuses its flavors high in the mouth. It feels sleek and lively and lasts for minutes. The floral scents of strawberry and brisk taste of toasted lees provide a transparent flavor tha magnifies the minerality of the wine. The perfect form makes it lovely to drink on its own, or with slices of sashimi. The color of this wine is salmon pink with orange highlights. On the nose, the wine has an elegant bouquet with hints of cherries that mingle with notes of lightly toasted nuts and a slight trace of orange zest. On the palate, creamy and silkly textures capture flavours that echo the aromas on the nose and deliver a finish of impressive length. A truly harmonious and enduring palate with all the hallmarks of a great Cristal Ros: fruity but rounded, delicate but powerful.
